Sweetest Tongue Has Sharpest Tooth 3
Painting - Digital Oil
Little girls, this seems to say, Never stop upon your way, Never trust a stranger-friend; No one knows how it will end. As you're pretty so be wise; Wolves may lurk in every guise. Handsome they may be, and kind, Gay, and charming - never mind! Now, as then, 'tis simple truth -- Sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth! -- Charles Perrault, 1697. A werewolf attempts to seduce a girl in a red cloak who has strayed from the path through the woods, based on the original erotic nature of the Red Riding Hood tales.
